My job is sedentary, so I'm able to intermittent fast and skip quite a number of meals and still maintain a substantial amount of muscle, I might only eat 2000 calories a day, usually 1-2 meals only.

If you're working in construction for example, your needs are going to be completely different. You also need to take your body composition into account. Are those high grams of protein intake also translating into accumulated fat as well?
My TDEE atm at sedentary is around 2,500 calories. With sports and gym its hovering around 2,600-2,750 on average.

I've started doing closer to 0.8-1grams of lean body pass. Which currently I'm estimating around 205lbs @ 14% Body fat = 177 Grams

It's a lot of protein for sure.

How are you slamming that back, shakes, and eggs?

It's a little high personally, but if it works for you.

You def don't need that much protein but yeah, do what works for your lifestyle

Make sure to get a lot of fiber, because high protein low fiber = diverticulitis risk
